whats up with the springboro y going down hill? most of the employees have major attitudes. everyone i know has quit to go to another gym, usually farther away. when are they gonna get someone in there to turn things around? ive been really upset with the immature drama that surrounds the staff, especially with that girl in charge of the classes who is obviously addicted to steroids! what kind of example is that to set?

I agree here, and I know in particular who you are talking about. I don't think there is anything that can be done except hope they get a new manager who isn't afraid of the "Steroid Troll".

Are steroids legal? The employee you are referring to goes by Dar and she is 4ft tall with biceps bigger than my head. Clearly abusing steroids. I wouldn't be surprised if she had a heart attack.

There was a big drug ring that was shut down last year that ran out of the Lebanon YMCA. You would open your locker and get your juice, then leave money behind. I go to the Springboro Y in the evening and haven't ever had any issues with the employees. I definitely havent seen anyone that looks like there are juicin, or even remotely interested in working out! LOL

I know nothing about Steriods but I quit because you can't move in there it is so crowded. Parents just drop their kids off, etc. The Y should announce that all children come to the gym sometime then attempt to match them up with parents. Be lucky if 30 percent had parents there.

this doesnt seem likely, you only get 90 minutes of daycare. i know it has happened in the past but this sounds absurd

i dont think that word means what you think it means, and it certainly isnt spelled the way you think its spelled.

i wouldnt call her a troll, i just think she needs to be highed liable for her attitude or better yet replaced. this is not a personal attack, she consistently goes against the improvements the members want in regard to classes. one guy wanted to lead a new class for cycling, and he is a great biker. there was open room time and a lot of interest in having an additional time besides 5am for a good spin class. i watched on facebook as one member confronted the woman in charge about her reasons for not allowing him the teach the class. a lot of people are upset with this person, and i dont mean 30 percent. i mean anyone at all that is unfortunate enough to have to deal with her.

its a lot of drama, but she is the source. i wish the y could go back to where it was 5 to 10 years ago. it was a great place to meet new people in the community and we had the best classes. i think there is no question that this person being in charge is the root cause of the decline.

does the y have a board, surely the number of memberships has declined.

anyway, feels better just to vent. on to the day!

I think it will get crowded again when the weather changes. I was there in the winter. The kids I talk about are not little ones that need day care but pre-teens. You can watch parents just drive up and drop them off and leave or a group of them walk across the parking lot. I am not sure what the age is that they can be there without and adult.
I did leave a T out of Vendetta but I used it in the proper context.

I sure wish they'd get some new equipment. A lot of it is outdated and needs maintenance.

If Coffman management was halfway serious about the future that frontage along the east side of the driveway would have been part of a master plan. I suppose they felt they had an obligation to be politically correct toward religious affiliations because that land is now stangely occupied by a church. As a result, the not so wise decision makers at our Springboro Coffman YMCA have doomed their own future by effectively landlocking their facility.

i might remind you that the YMCA stands for YOUNG MENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION it is a christian facility and that church is partnered with the Y.

You might call it a church. I call it a pitiful waste of real estate. Face the facts. The idiot top leadership of Coffman had the opportunity to expand and make that facility into something Springboro might be proud of, something on the par with Lebanon's Countryside. They absolutely blew that chance. And for what reason? Political correctness? Baahhahahahahaha!!! Those idiots ought to be glad to be clinging to their cake Y jobs because they'd never survive a full year in the real world.
